Happy birthday! 1979-2009.Thirty years. Pretty amazing that it’s been that long since those crazy Dutchmen at Philips spun the technology off of laser discs as part of an optical digital audio disc demo in Eindhoven.
It sure has come a long way from a peice of plastic that would orange peel.. wait, they still do that.
Well it came a long way from back when they called them “indestructable” to almost obsoleted by it’s grand son the blue ray, or hd disk that holds nearly 100 times it’s 700 mb capacity.
Thank you compact disk for creating this wonderfull peice of junk that skips or silences every time I hit a railroad track.
